SUMMIT DOPPLER L350 TABLETOP DOPPLER REVIEW 

Add to compare


Summit Doppler is a big-name brand in the ABI machine industry. Case in point, the Summit Doppler L350 tabletop doppler is just one of the many ABI systems that they released for their ‘Lifedop’ line. Features-wise, it’s not quite at the level of their bigger ABI systems. However, it does offer a monitor display that not all of their pocket dopplers have.  

Features 

As mentioned, this is definitely not their most sophisticated ABI machine. However, it does offer certain features that make it stand apart from their more basic pocket dopplers.  

  • First of all, the L350 offers two probe holders (with each doppler accompanied by the probe of your choice — although you will need to pay extra for the SDW and STN probe.) 
  • The two main probes included in the system package is an 8 MHz transducer probe and a sterilizable probe. Both of which were specifically chosen for their ability to detect blood in the veins and arteries.  
  • Lastly, it comes with a basic wall mount that will allow you to position it right onto the wall, and an optional stand can be purchased as well.

Tests Performed 

The probes included in the L350, whilst chosen for vascular examinations, are non-directional. Which means that they can be used for determining the rate at which the blood is flowing, but it will not provide insight into the direction from which blood is coming and going from.  

This, by itself, makes it a lot less sophisticated than some of the other dopplers in the market. Even more so when you consider the more popular modern application of PV dopplers.  

In other news, we do have to take into consideration the main operating system. For which a monitor display is provided — which can help ease the process of examination. It offers helpful information in the form of battery life, signal quality, and heart rate.

SUMMITDOPPLER L350 TABLETOP DOPPLER REVIEW 

Overall, the Summit Doppler L350 is a very basic representation of the type of systems Summit Doppler has produced in the past. In fact, it’s not even at the level of some of their cheaper pocket dopplers. Some of which at least have the ability to perform directional vascular examinations

Pros and Cons 

A list of pros and cons of the Summit Doppler L350 Tabletop Doppler.  


PROS:

  • Even though it’s quite a simple device, Summit Doppler has done a lot to increase its effectiveness and efficiency.  
  • That comes in the form of rechargeable batteries, the wall-mounting feature, and the informative display. 
  • There are also two non-directional (power) probes provided with purchase. One of which is a stabilizer and the other is an 8 MHz transducer.  

CONS:

  • Of course, convenience aside, that doesn’t mean that the Summit Doppler L350 is the best option in the market. As it stands, it loses out to even some of Summit Doppler’s own pocket dopplers — which are cheaper and offer bidirectional doppler probes that can determine more than just the rate at which blood is flowing.   
  • Other than that, it begs the question as to whether you should spend money on this or buy a more modern device with more sophisticated features that allow for automated vascular testing.
